This is a great charity. It inspires children to be the best they can and think big. I am a proud donor.
I had the honor of working with Carson Scholars Fund as a Writing Consultant for the magnificent students who received scholarships through the organization. I was humbled to be surrounded by such dedicated staff and have an opportunity to be apart of a mission that seeks to further the education of thousands of children across the US.
Writing bios about so many gifted children changed my life and fulfilled my spirit! I would offer my services to such a magical cause anytime.
This organization provides students with the opportunity for independent reading with their Ben Carson Reading Rooms. These reading rooms are colorful, book-filled rooms with cozy nooks and couches where students can choose a book and let their imaginations build knowledge and dreams!
Dr. Carson and his wife Candy have given me the chance to live the American Dream of receiving a college education. Not in my wildest dreams did I believe that I would win my school's nomination to compete against all the talented applicants from across our great nation, let alone being named a Carson Scholar. The values that Dr. Carson and his wife live their lives' inspire me and taught me that I must give back to not only my community, but to my country. The commitment of the Carson family and staff to family values, education, and community service are instrumental in the growth of the Carson Scholars Fund in creating more Reading Rooms across the country. Community service is the backbone of each Carson Scholar. As a five-year award recipient, Dr. Carson challenged me to do seek leadership roles, which ultimately prepared me to enter Honor College competitions. The colleges asked me about the mission of Dr. Carson and how my service work has influenced my career choice. I can proudly say that I was selected for a full-ride scholarship. Dr. Carson's belief in me is the reason why I am a first-year undergraduate student working on medical research. The Carson Scholars Fund is the real deal, supporting future scientists, teachers, and community leaders. Do not hesitate to donate, as the monetary award I received was sent directly to my college.
This is a great rescue from the great decline in American values.
I am proud to be a Carson Scholar! Ben Carson is a great man with an amazing story and the Carson Fund continues to open doors for our children. As a Fifth grade Carson Scholar, I knew college was in my future. The Carson Fund makes the college dream a reality at such an early age.
Carson Scholars is an incredibly important organization that has provided hundreds of students across the Country achieve their goal of a higher education. As a recently retired 40 year Middle School teacher in Maryland, I personally used the Carson Scholar philosophy to change the lives of so many kids. Our children need desperately to see the purpose of a good education as well as the love for helping others. This non-profit is beyond Dr. Carson's dream, but something people around our country are willing to support and watch grow. I will continue to offer my personal assistance in moving this program across the country. This nonprofit is truly what America needs to stay on top of the world in education.
There is a dire need in our country to improve the philosophy of education. Students are in desperate need of confidence and drive which will lead to determination, and most importantly, character. DR. Carson has found the way to do just that. Using the principals that his mother used on him to transform him from the school dummy to the most saught after neurosurgeon in the WORLD, Dr. Carson has turned failing schools into places of success and joy. Our children are our future!!!!! What more important nonprofit organization could we have than one where those who are destined to live off the system are transformed into joyful, prepared and productive members of society.
I cannot thank the Carson Scholarship fund enough for motivating me to do more community service. After hearing about all the accomplishments of other young people around me I realize how much more I can do. I love helping people.
